Seems to be such a regular everyday act. Someone has to bring these boxes and offerings to the cemetery. Your picture makes it look so much matter of fact, without complicated ritual.

You were caught in the act, great shot Kal..:>

I was just reading up a bit on Ancestor's Day and how offerings were made to the dead and figured it was a gift of a house. The gift of fire seems to be rather popular.
